Tips for Overeaters

  • If your overeating is triggered by emotions, look for responses to emotional discomfort other than food. The next time you're feeling blue, take a long walk or play tennis. Exercise can elevate your mood by changing your body's chemistry.

  • Stop and think before you dig into that next bowl of ice cream. Ask yourself: "Do I really want to eat this? Am I even hungry?" Divert your attention from food.

  • Keep an "Eating Journal" to write down your daily food intake as a way of becoming more conscious of your eating patterns.

  • If you don't feel confident about your ability to stop overeating, seek professional counseling.
